It has recently been demonstrated that the marked increase in the systemic concentration of cytokine interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) seen with exercise originates from the contracting limb and that skeletal muscle cells per se are the likely source of the production. This review summarizes the possible mechanisms for activation and biological consequences of muscle‐derived IL‐6. It appears that intramuscular IL‐6 is stimulated by complex signaling cascades initiated by both calcium (Ca2+) ‐dependent and… Expand
Chronic exercise decreases cytokine production in healthy rat skeletal muscle
TLDR
It is shown that in healthy rats, 8‐week moderate‐intensity aerobic training down regulates skeletal muscle production of cytokines involved in the onset, maintenance and regulation of inflammation, and that the response is heterogeneous according to fibre composition. Expand
Muscle-derived interleukin-6: lipolytic, anti-inflammatory and immune regulatory effects
TLDR
The data support the hypothesis that the role of IL-6 released from contracting muscle during exercise is to act in a hormone-like manner to mobilize extracellular substrates and/or augment substrate delivery during exercise. Expand

TLDR
IL‐6 clearly has lipolytic effects and anti‐obesity potential, however, the application of IL‐6 itself is at least limited by a narrow therapeutic range and its important function for a balanced inflammatory response. Expand
Muscle-derived interleukin-6—A possible link between skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, liver, and brain
TLDR
It is suggested that the term "myokines" should be used exclusively to describe cytokines or other peptides, which are produced and released by muscle fibers per se, and may represent the link from working muscle to other organs such as the adipose tissue, the liver, and the vascular compartments. Expand
Muscle as an endocrine organ: focus on muscle-derived interleukin-6.
TLDR
This review focuses on the myokine IL-6, its regulation by exercise, its signaling pathways in skeletal muscle, and its role in metabolism in both health and disease. Expand
Anti-Inflammatory Effect of Muscle-Derived Interleukin-6 and Its Involvement in Lipid Metabolism
TLDR
Why IL-6 has different functions, the signaling mode of hyper-IL-6 via soluble IL- 6 receptor (sIL- 6R), and the involvement of soluble glycoprotein 130 in the suppressive effect ofhyper-il-6 are discussed. Expand
Nutritional interventions and the IL‐6 response to exercise
TLDR
Emerging evidence suggests that sufficient energy intake before exercise is an important factor in attenuating exercise‐induced IL‐6 by maintaining muscle glycogen and providing recommendations for future research exploring the role of IL‐ 6 in the adaptive response to exercise. Expand
IL‐6 Gene Expression in Human Adipose Tissue in Response to Exercise – Effect of Carbohydrate Ingestion
TLDR
Exercise results in an increase in IL‐6 gene expression in adipose tissue in response to exercise, an effect that is significantly blunted by ingestion of carbohydrate. Expand

TLDR
Muscle-derived cytokines appear to have important roles in metabolism, and exercise plays a role in orchestrating the interplay between cytokines and metabolism. Expand
Beneficial health effects of exercise--the role of IL-6 as a myokine.
TLDR
It is proposed that muscle-derived IL-6 meets the criteria of an exercise factor and that such classes of cytokine should be named 'myokines', which creates a new paradigm: skeletal muscle as an endocrine organ. Expand

Muscle‐derived interleukin‐6: possible biological effects
TLDR
Muscle‐derived IL‐6 is released into the circulation during exercise in high amounts and is likely to work in a hormone‐like fashion, exerting an effect on the liver and adipose tissue, thereby contributing to the maintenance of glucose homeostasis during exercise and mediating exercise‐induced lipolysis. Expand
Production of interleukin‐6 in contracting human skeletal muscles can account for the exercise‐induced increase in plasma interleukin‐6
TLDR
It is suggested that IL‐6 produced by skeletal contracting muscle contributes to the maintenance of glucose homeostasis during prolonged exercise. Expand
Evidence that interleukin‐6 is produced in human skeletal muscle during prolonged running
TLDR
The hypothesis that inflammatory cytokines are produced in skeletal muscle in response to prolonged intense exercise is tested and it is suggested that exercise‐induced destruction of muscle fibres in skeletal muscles may trigger local production of IL‐6, which stimulates the production ofIL‐1ra from circulating BMNC.

  • 2001
TLDR
The data demonstrate that exercise activates transcription of the IL‐6 gene in working skeletal muscle, a response that is dramatically enhanced when glycogen levels are low, and support the hypothesis that IL‐ 6 may be produced by contracting myofibers when glycogens levels become critically low as a means of signaling the liver to increase glucose production. Expand
Muscle contractions induce interleukin‐6 mRNA production in rat skeletal muscles
TLDR
It is concluded that IL‐6 is locally produced after muscle contraction, with no significant differences between different muscle fibre types, since no changes in the level of GLUT‐4 mRNA were found. Expand
Interleukins and exercise

  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of physiology
  • 2000
TLDR
The paper by Steensberg et al. (2000) in this issue of The Journal of Physiology is the first study to describe an increase in the net release of interleukin-6 (IL-6) from exercising skeletal muscle in humans and the authors suggest a hormone-like glucoregulatory role for this cytokine. Expand
Interleukin‐6 production in contracting human skeletal muscle is influenced by pre‐exercise muscle glycogen content
TLDR
It is demonstrated that glycogen availability is associated with alterations in the rate of IL‐6 production and release in contracting skeletal muscle, and that this change was augmented in the leg having the lowest glycogen content at end‐ex. Expand
Pro‐ and anti‐inflammatory cytokine balance in strenuous exercise in humans
TLDR
Strenuous exercise induces an increase in the pro‐inflammatory cytokines TNFα and IL‐1β and a dramatic increases in the inflammation responsive cytokine IL‐6, which is balanced by the release of cytokine inhibitors (IL‐1ra, sT NF‐r1 and sTNF‐r2) and the anti‐inflammatoryocyte IL‐10. Expand
Exercise-induced immunomodulation--possible roles of neuroendocrine and metabolic factors.
TLDR
A model based on the possible roles that stress hormones play a mediating the exercise- related immunological changes is proposed: adrenaline and to a lesser degree noradrenaline are responsible for the immediate effects of exercise on lymphocyte subpopulations and cytotoxic activities. Expand
Interleukin 1β and interleukin 6, but not tumor necrosis factor α, inhibit insulin‐stimulated glycogen synthesis in rat hepatocytes
TLDR
The results indicate that IL‐1β and IL‐6 regulate insulin‐stimulated glycogen synthesis through different pathways involving protein phosphorylation in hepatocytes may mediate the change of hepatic glucose metabolism under pathological and even physiological conditions by modifying insulin action in vivo.
